What is

The golf business is unique. To succeed you need special knowledge of how it works. You need experience in sales and marketing, the training and ability to see possibilities and opportunities. The right connections and a solid network to make your concept a reality. And last but not least – lots and lots of enthusiasm for the game.

Next Hole can offer you all this. We are consultants specializing in the business and technology of golf. From market analysis and course development to tournament administration, exclusive travel arrangements and marketing. We also develop technology solutions for golfers, golf clubs and golf federations. Next Hole also owns GolfingTechnology, a firm focusing on tech-solutions for golf.

Next Hole can use our extensive network of contacts to help see your project through to success.

Why us?

Most of life’s good intentions and ideas get stuck because of too little time, lack of the specialist skills needed, not the right contacts, not enough dedication and lots of other reasons. Being as dedicated to business as we are to golf, we can help you to make your ideas and plans come true   – what ever they are. As long as they have something to do with golf.
